jbinbi bene 473 is a great boat for carib. The boat sails best over 15 kts, is a pig below 10, but then again, below 10 put on the iron genoa anyway. Has a great interior, if you have the 2 cabin version, great layout. Have sailed many hours in it, if around 200 a good deal.

chucklesR I sail a CAT because I like sailing WITH my wife - and for 150k its a lot of well tested boat, in fact ditch the No-man and the Bendytoy and go buy a brand new Gemini instead. Drink Rum on the hook without cupholders, hell sail without cupholders
